The Olympic Peninsula in Washington State is known for being an untouched and pristine corner of the world. Home to charming towns such as Sequim, the peninsula is famously home to the ruggedly beautiful and wild Olympic National Park. Moreover, the Washington coastline claims miles of untouched beach habitat, some of which we have the pleasure of sharing with you at the Dungeness Bay Cottages. Whale watching season is here. If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about these incredible ocean-going giants beneath the surface, now is the time to book a tour. Book your room at our private oceanfront cottages, and come experience the rugged beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
Whale Watching Tours in the Pacific Northwest
There are a few excellent whale watching tour companies that operate in the area. Puget Sound Express, which leaves out of Port Townsend, is the most popular. They have been offering whale watching excursions in the area for over 30 years. Tours begin in March with Gray whales. In April, they offer a four-hour guaranteed whale sighting tour, as well as an all day tour that includes a stop in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. You can also catch whale watching tours out of Port Angeles from May – October with Island Adventures Whale Watching. Their 4-5 hour whale watching excursions have an unmatched success rate, and they have been voted the #1 tour for several years in a row. The Water Limousine is another tour company, which leaves out of Sequim’s John Wayne Marina. It’s a private charter service offering whale watching excursions from May through September.
You can also occasionally spot whales swimming just off the coast in front of the Dungeness Bay Cottages. Come join us this summer for a relaxing getaway, and a sensational whale watching adventure. Book your room at the Dungeness Bay Cottages today.
